Western Australia South Infrared (b/w) Satellite/Lightning
Western Australia Satellite Notes
A band of cloud is crossing southwestern parts of WA with a cold front, causing areas of rain to spread east. Scattered cloud behind this front in cold southwesterly winds is bringing showers. Cloud is clearing from the Southern Interior as jetstream winds aloft carry it east.
Water is flowing into outback Lake Eyre, but somewhat differently from past flooding of the remote saltpan, travel guide Rex Ellis says.
A strong and complex low is moving over New Zealand and has been generating heavy rain, isolated thunderstorms and gale force winds.
The sunrise this morning likely made the ancient sandstone formation of Uluru glow a glorious red at dawn, although cloud and rain from today should lead to more demure morning displays for the next couple of days.
